Kansas consumers who sent money to scam artists through MoneyGram between 2013 and 2017 may be eligible to receive compensation, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt said. The funds come from a $125 million administrative forfeiture from MoneyGram as part of an agreement with the U.S. Department of Justice and the Federal Trade Commission filed in 2018. That agreement came after a similar agreement in 2012, when MoneyGram agreed to implement a new fraud interdiction system. However, that system ultimately proved ineffective, and MoneyGram failed to block a substantial number of transactions associated with entities they previously identified as receiving fraudulent transactions.
